Some lakes south of Hutch

4 posts in this topic

I dont think this was the right posting area but this was as close as I could find. I was wondering about some lakes south of hutch called Allie and Preston. I live in Shakopee it looks like Hwy 212 will take me through Glencoe and into the general area. From there Im not quite sure and am still studying the Mn state map. These lakes are not very big and appear to be about 12 feet deep. Anyway I was just wondering about general species activity and some insight on weather it's worth the drive for some late afternoon and night action. Thanks.

I live near both lakes in question. I have fished preston once,this winter. I caught afew. They were not huge. But the action was not bad! 6 bites 4 fish. hour and a half on ice. Good luck!

Was on Preston for most of the day Saturday, fished several different areas and caught nothing bigger than 11". Caught a bunch, but nothing worth keeping.

Thanks big Ds. Ive been waiting along time for a response. It sounds pretty slow. I never made it out there any way but lake allie sounded like a decent little walleye lake but maybe ill try the kandiyohias. Or maybe head more north to some prime waters.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
